And for some added excitement, bring your loonies, toonies, $5 and $10 bills and try your luck in the 50-50'll get to split the jackpot with the club. It's $1 per ticket, so the more tickets you buy, the greater chance of having your ticket selected. Get engaged and have some FUN.

You can register EITHER online by e-mailing OR at the clubhouse on the sign-up sheet, but not both. Either way, please provide your first and last name, and indicate if you are bringing a guest (maximum two). To ensure we have enough food, YOU MUST REGISTER NO LATER THAN WEDNESDAY, JULY 22nd. If you register and then find out you or your guest(s) cannot attend, please let us know as soon as possible by e-mail or by deleting your name from the paper sign-up sheet. Note: this event will take place RAIN or SHINE.

Members are free; guests are $5 per person. Please put your money in one of the provided envelopes, with your and your guests' names, write "Social" on the outside of the envelope and slide it through the slot of the Guest Fee box.

Please note there is no organized round robin before dinner, but feel free to come tag up, play, and work up an appetite. Our Italian Night Dinner was a real hit, so you won't want to miss this one. Our Social Chairs, Anita and Nellie, are working hard to ensure another successful event with good food, good fun and some friendly trivial pursuit team competition. 
 Adeus, vejo você lá (Bye, see you there).
Last Sunday we "opened the door" between our Club and our neighbours, and hosted the Lawrence Park Bowling and Croquet Club in a special Tea & Tennis event. Members from both clubs tried out each other's sport of choice, and had fun mingling, talking, enjoying great treats, and learning a new skill. A special thank you to Puica Nitu for co-ordinating the event, Mary Kaye and Phil Parsons for inviting us next door, Nellie Poucheva for arranging the refreshments, Molly Greenwood for her delicious lemon squares and Adam Hawkins for running a combined round robin with our neighbours. A good time was had by all.
Calling all competitors... Our tournament season is fast approaching, and this year we are trying something different to encourage more overall participation and inject more fun to our tournament schedule. In addition to the usual Men's/Ladies'/Mixed events, we are also adding some unique doubles' events:
  • Early Bird mixed doubles 
  • Ladies' Day Teams' (TLTC & NYTA) doubles
  • House League mixed doubles
Tournament play will start mid-August and end in late September over 3 special "finals' weekends."

More details and sign-up information will be available by early August, but here's your heads-up to pick a partner and start practising. Tournaments will be organized by our Games Chair, Cecelia Thng,
